SpectreVision, the horror-thriller label run by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller, is moving forward with its latest project, The Boy.
Craig Macneill is directing the movie from a screenplay by him and Clay McLeod Chapman, who created the characters in his novel Miss Corpus. Shooting will begin February 17 in Medellin, Colombia.
The Boy is the first movie of a planned trilogy that will track the childhood of a future serial killer. The films will explore the killer at the ages of 9, 14, and 18, culminating with him becoming an iconic mass murderer.
It is based on the short film Henley, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was directed and written by Macneill and Chapman, respectively.
Jared Breeze will play the lead role of Henley. The eight-year old actor is a SpectreVision find as he made his acting debut in Cooties, the company’s horror comedy, which premieres on Sunday at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
